Developing Tank, Kodak
This is an early developing tank made by 'Kodak'.
At first films were processed in shallow dishes of chemicals, but this was not always easy and soon manufacturers sought ways to make home processing easier. In the Kodak tank Film was wound on to a rod, this was placed inside the tank, chemical poured in and the lid fitted whilst processing took place - all this to be done in total darkness.
The Kodak tank was difficult to improve on because it could cope with a very wide range of different roll film formats – there were literally dozens in the early 20th century.
